Is she blues? Is she country? Is this totally uncool music for parents? These are all questions you might ask yourself while listening to talented singer-songwriter Valerie June, or more specifically to her celebrated 2013 album Pushin’ Against A Stone. (“Organic moonshine roots music,” she calls it.) The Tennessee-raised New Yorker “could have been genetically engineered in some secret NPR laboratory,” one reviewer declared upon hearing that album for the first time, and he’s not wrong. It’s an album I’ve gone back to many times more than I ever would have predicted. Valerie June plays something like 200 shows a year, too, so expect her live act to be pretty well put together.
